Administration allegedly trying to hush up the case Committee formed to probe the matter, says VC
Islamabad: The unfortunate incident of molestation of a female student of Quaid-i-Azam
University (QAU) by the controller examination is allegedly being
hushed up by the university administration.
According to the
details, a female student from the natural sciences department of QAU
went to Controller Examinations for some paper work. The official locked
the door and allegedly molested her. The girl started screaming after
which the official ran away.
The parents of the girl visited the
university campus and asked QAU Vice Chancellor (VC) Dr. Masoom Yasinzai
to conduct a fair inquiry into the case and remove the controller
examination from his post who is also a threat for the other girls
studying in the university.
The university has constituted a
committee including QAU National Institute of Psychology Director Dr.
Anila Kamal, Chemistry Department Chairperson Dr. Saqib Ali, Department
of Biochemistry Professor Dr. Wasim and Campus Manager Colonel (r)
However, sources in the university believe that the
university was trying to give cover to the culprit, as he is still not
being suspended yet. "The university should have suspended the culprit
as soon as it has received a complaint against him," he said.
source said that there was no need to constitute a new committee when
there was already a committee. "A formal committee on sexual harassment
has already been announced however, its notification is still pending.
The VC should have issued the notification for the same committee
instead of announcing a new one," the source said.
information, the formal committee on sexual harassment included the
deans of department and members of civil society while Farzana Bari was
the convener of that committee.
"The purpose behind the
constitution of committee was nothing but to hush up the matter. The
university administration knew that the already purposed committee could
create a hype of the issue and the incident could be reported to media
in that case," the source believed.
Human Rights Activist QAU Gender Studies Department Head Farzana Bari said
that it was not the first case of this nature in the university however,
this is the first case that has been properly reported. "Most of such
cases are hushed up either by the victim's family or by the university
administration," she said.
She said that most of the cases of
harassment reported in the university are 'students versus students'.
"We often receive complaints from girls against boys. In such cases
warning letters are issued to the culprits and matters are normally
resolved," she said.
She said that the constitution of adhoc
committee was not the solution of sexual harassment cases. "The
administration should constitute a formal committee, which comprises
experts rather than any layman," she said.
She said that the
administration of university was trying to hide the identity of the
culprit and providing cover to him. "The identity of victim should not
be disclosed, but the identity of culprit should be made public," she
QAU Vice Chancellor Dr Masoom
Yasinzai said that a committee comprising senior most and non
controversial faculty members has already been constituted to probe the
matter. "We have asked the committee to present its report within one
week," he said.
He said that the committee that has been earlier
constituted has not sent its proposal to him for the approval so he has
constituted new committee. "The earlier committee was meant to deal the
general cases of sexual harassment. The committee, which has been now
constituted is meant to deal with this particular case. Moreover, the
presence of Farzana Bari could have created controversy since she is a
human rights activist," he added.
He said that the culprit if
proven guilty would be immediately suspended while stern action would be
taken against him according to the rules and procedures of the
university. The news
